Nintendo Announces Discontinuation of Nintendo TVii.

Once one of the cooler features promised by the WiiU, but in practice, cumbersome and clunky, the system’s TVii service will be shutting down on August 11th, according to a post on the feature’s Miiverse.Nintendo TVii service was a bit limited in its rollout as it was released for the United States, Canada and Japan users only and was never released for European users.

In an announcement at both TVii’s official support site and its Miiverse page, Nintendo confirmed that TVii, a TV Guide-style interface meant to help users sort through live and streaming video listings, would no longer function after August 11. Sarah of Nintendo said the following: “After almost 3 years of finding, watching and engaging with Nintendo TVii, we will be ending the service on August 11, 2015 at 3:00pm PT.

However, ever since June 2014 we have been noticing that Nintendo was losing interest in it because that was the last time they updated Nintendo TVii. Nintendo did not announce a replacement, but said that other Vidoe on Demand services used on the Wii U, such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Instant Video, YouTube, and Crunchyroll, will not be affected by the shutdown. We look forward to your contributions within our many other Miiverse communities.” It is likely that many fans didn’t even utilize the service which could be a reason why Nintendo is deciding to dedicate resources elsewhere. Nintendo TVii also incorporated social media functionality, allowing users to share their thoughts over Twitter, Facebook, and Miiverse; and a doodle mode for drawing over the on-screen action.

The NX will likely launch as early as summer of next year, according to video game retailers who say they’ve already been tasked to prepare for it by Nintendo.
